Café Conversations: Creating an Urban Forest
02/20/2019, 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Memphis Brooks Museum of Art | Free. map
Café Conversations coincide with a tour of a related special exhibition or works from the Brooks permanent collection. Led by Memphians, the series encourages visitors to contemplate real life issues by drawing comparisons to themes in art.
For this Café Conversation, Creating an Urban Forest, Eric Bridges, Director of Operations at Overton Park Conservancy, will encourage Brooks visitors to step beyond the museum walls to consider our larger environment: Overton Park. Instead of walking into the galleries, Bridges will take participants outside the museum to study Old Forest trees in juxtaposition with the 24-foot high tree installation created for Rotunda Projects: Federico Uribe, on view at the Brooks through August 11.
Free. No reservations required.
